During WonderCon today a new trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter dropped and it has now made its way online. The Tim Burton-produced period action film follows the story of our late president with some deadly creatures in the mix. Building on the initial trailer, this gives our star Benjamin Walker more dialogue and shows off a few other action setpieces, including a neat chase on the side of a cliff, as well as some slo-mo jumping-off-the-walls fight scene. But like Wanted, the last film from this director, it looks like all style over substance which could make for a very tedious summer blockbuster experience. I hope I’m wrong, but judge for yourself with the new trailer below.
The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, also starring Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell and Erin Wasson and Dominic Cooper, hits theaters June 22nd.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
